Explanation:
Hello, Rachel,

Hate to tell you this, but this assignment requires that you write a description in French. So pull out your textbook, look at the chapter you are working on right now, and go back over the ones you've already studied. Use those sentence structures and vocabulary you've already studied that look like they'll fit your assignment, and WRITE IN FRENCH (don't try to translate--it's too much work!)

I gather you will have to listen to something first, and answer some multiple choice questions (probably about what you've listened to). Use what you learn from what you've listened to--and the content of those multiple choice questions!-- to get material to do your writing.
